John Ellis Dies Very Suddenly

The community was shocked to learn of the death of John Ellis, who passed away Sunday night after an illness that began only that morning, appoplexy being the immediate cause of his death.

John Bradley Ellis was born in the town of Pine Grove, Portage county, January 13, 1877, the eldest son of George and Asenith Ellis. He passed away at his home in Plainfield Sunday, Mar. 28, 1937, at the age of 60 years, 2 months and 15 days.

At the age of 16, he moved with his parents to the town of Plainfield where he spent the remainder of his life, with the exception of seven years spent in Argonne, Wis.

He was married to Belle DeVoe on March 6, 1898. To them were born three children, Florence Taplin and Floyd Ellis of Plainfield, and Russell, who preceded him in death December 28, 1935.

He leaves to mourn his loss his wife, Mrs. John Ellis, a daughter, Mrs. Florence Taplin, a son, Floyd Ellis, five brothers, Charles and William of Spokane, Wash., and Harley, Clyde and Gyle of Plainfield; one sister, Mrs. T. J. Aores of Spokane; and four grandchildren, Nona, Warren and Ellen Rose Taplin, and Beverley Ann Ellis; one sister, Mrs. J. D. Worden, preceded him in death Aug. 27, 1935.

Mr. Ellis was a member of the Plainfield Odd Fellow Lodge No. 73, and was a devoted member for 35 years. He was a Past Noble Grand. He was a member of the Plainfield Advancement Assn., having conducted a business place here for the past nine years, and as a mark of respect all of the business places were closed for the funeral which was held Wednesday afternoon, March 31, at the Plainfield M. E. church, the Rev. Carsten Paulson, pastor of the church, officiating. Rev. and Mrs. Paulson sang "In The Garden" and "Good Night Here and Good Morning Up There" and Mrs. Paulson played several hymns.

The pallbearers were Dr. E. H. Lane, Harry Gibbs, Ray Eager, Herbert Indermuehle, Ed. Thurston and Albert Gear. Mrs. R. Diver, Mrs. H. Indermuehle and Mrs. W. Vroman were in charge of the beautiful floral offerings. Members of the Odd Fellow lodge attended the funeral in a body and the Odd Fellow funeral service was conducted at the grave by Past Noble Grand Weller of Wisconsin Rapids Lodge No. 92.

Those who attended the funeral from a distance were Mrs. Hubert Cotton, Mr. and Mrs. Frank Taplin and Mrs. Cora Stilwell of Wautoma, Mr. and Mrs. D. M. Wood and Miss Inez Perry of Nekoosa, Willard Wood of Minneapolis, Loren Ellis of City Point, and a host of other friends from the vicinity and far places.

A precious one from us has gone,
A voice we loved is stilled.
A place is vacant in our home,
That never can be filled.
We deeply appreciate the kindness rendered us from our dear friends and neighbors, from Mr. Goult and the Rev. and Mrs. Paulson for their beautiful selections and our thanks are extended to the donors of the beautiful floral offerings , the pall bearers and the Odd Fellows for services extended.
